La-Z-Boy Recliner Fix

Yesterday, Louie told me our recliner in the basement living area was ‘stuck’ in the ‘halfway down’ position.  He said he tried and tried to fix it without any luck.

I went down this morning and tried myself for quite awhile to figure it out. I laid the chair on it’s back, then on it’s side, and I could not find anything that should be in the way of the mechanism working smoothly. No amount of brute force could budge it without fear of bending steel out of shape. I decided to visit Google and see what I could come up with.  I found THIS site and what a BLESSING it was! Armed with my can of WD-40, I sprayed in the many spots that should move.

I have no idea which spot I hit that was the right one, but now my recliner is in the down position, just like the chair pictured below, and all parts move just like they were new! Smooth as silk. Quiet as a breeze.

This is so timely for me! Jerry's recliner won't go back at all - one minute it would and the next it wouldn't. I'm hoping it won't have to be scrapped! blessings, marlene
